F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP

OK, for those like me that were asking what the hell the point of a fuel flow rate is with a strict 100KG limit anyway here is what I'm told: At some of the more fuel efficient tracks teams would have the possibility to easily tune their engines to silly horsepower via the turbos for periods during the race and still make the finish line - the cars would simply become too fast for the circuits again like in the 80s. So the flow restriction limits what outright power is possible with the turbos, which is fair enough.

F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP

Maximum average? Is 100kg/hour the maximum flow allowed or the average flow allowed? From the wording it sounds like the maximum flow allowed. Which still seems pointless as long as the team only has 100kg of fuel to use. Sure they might use heaps of fuel at the styart of the race but theyve still got to make it to the finish by saving fuel at the end.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: No-one is near Marquez

As I understand it Marc's race sim was done in the morning temperature when the track is much cooler than in the afternoon, when Jorge did his, which would have effected the lap times a lot considering g the race is always held in the afternoon. Marc certainly wasn't that much faster than Dani during last years race. Maybe Cal is just stirring the pot

MotoGP » MotoGP: Who holds the lap records?

Unsurprising that nearly all the lap records are from the last couple of years of the 1000cc formula. Also not surprised about Dani holding a number of the records. Ever since He joined GP he'd often set the fastest lap of the race early on before fading as the tyres wear and the guys who are either better at riding on worn tyres or better at conserving their tyres ride away from him.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st

Back to back titles happen more often in less competitive eras. Since the aliens arrived wins have been super hard to achieve, let alone titles. These days you need everything to go perfectly. Ill be impressed if Marc can go back to back but he's got the best chance that anyone has fro quite a whle. There are now only 2 other aliens to compete with, and HRC will be backing Marquez as their number 1 which Dani won't have had to deal with before. That leaves only Jorge in Marc's way, and if he was to have an injury with Miraculous Marc still bouncing off the pavement without harm then the title could easily end up in Marc's hands again, especially with the extra experience he'll have.
